Subgiant is a collective of Southampton based musicians with a flexible line up centred around driving force Olly Maw. Formed in 2000 as a four piece band which included two programmers/samplers a dj and drummer, the sound was certainly different from most bands on the local scene, fusing breakbeat, dub, drum 'n' bass and ambience, after a few sell-out gigs Olly decided it was time to get some serious recording done and push out the debut album 'Growth'. The album is a much more chilled out affair than that of the live sound. Featuring twelve new tracks it takes a journey through ambient textures and warm grooves with fat breakbeats to smooth drum 'n' bass and summer dub. Key tracks include the orchestrally cinematic 'Marianne' and the uplifting chill of 'The Emperors New Dub'.
